Game Recap

The Carolina Hurricanes (13-8-1) kicked off the Ellis/Peters era in style with a big win over Buffalo. The Canes led throughout and the Sweet TEA line (Tlusty, Eric, Semin) was in it's original form as they accounted for 7 points tonight which brigs their total to 27 points in their last four games.

The Canes are back at it on Thursday night as they take on Eastern Conference beast, Montreal at PNC Arena.

We are such a good team. It's ridiculous. Best start to a game that we've had all season. This game could EASILY be 3-0 right now if we had a couple of bounces go our way. We keep this up and we'll win just by virtue of puck possession. Forecheck is absolutely unreal.

Oh we will. That chemistry for that line is too good to break up. We HAVE to keep that line. Keep that line in tact and keep Jordan Staal. If we let anybody go for cap space, Jussi and Rosie are odd man out. Semin has been SO big for us.
